1979 Bruins vs The Rangers Fans: It all started on the ice – but it ended very far off it. On December 23, 1979, the Boston Bruins had just wrapped up a 4-3 victory over the Rangers in Madison Square Garden, and a few of the skaters had actually headed back into the locker room. But then things got a little testy on the ice. Both teams got into a little bit of a scrum following the final whistle, and had pushed each other around in the left corner of the rink. Then, the Ranger faithful got involved. It all started when a fan reached over the boards and grabbed Stan Jonathan’s stick, hitting him with it as the players on the ice were in arms. Other fans then followed suit, pestering the Bruins players. That’s when Terry O’Reilly hit his boiling point. Big number 24 then launched himself over the boards, charging into the stands. Plenty of Bruins followed him off the ice, including Mike Milbury, who ripped off a fan’s shoe and beat him mercilessly with it. O’Reilly himself received an eight-game suspension for the fight. He also received a lifetime in Boston folk-lore.

Grow up ladies.

Edit: Of all the people to beat me to the punch
